Here's the thing about DIYs: Nobody really needs to do most of them. Nobody really needs to make a crochet egg holder, or a cheese grater earring stand, or ice tray chocolate strawberries (though, like, yum), because for most of these things, you can buy better versions of them in a store.
But DIYs, especially beauty DIYs, aren't necessarily about making a picture-perfect dupe of your $60 dollar lipstick, but instead getting to have fun and create something with your hands—something that is filled with ingredients you actually know and handled yourself. So, you know, what literally every human in the 19th century did.
